A Quick Note

We arrived in Winter Park, Colorado at 6:20 pm. We left Little Rock at 4:30 am. I did not feel like a 14 hour drive. I was able to sleep two hours because I did not get home from work until 11 pm the night before. So, while we were stopped for lunch, Jeffrey, my brother, called. He informed me that I got a letter from UALR. As most of you know, I have been waiting on this letter to know if I got into the 1 year Advanced Standing Social Work masters program. Well... I got in!!!!!! I'm so excited. Only 1 year until I can start doing what I love. Will post pics from Colorado soon.

Graduation Photos 2

Here are a few more pictures.

Graduation Pictures

Yesterday, I had Christy take some photos for my graduation invitations. We had such a good time. I have very squinty eyes, so Christy made me open my eyes very wide. Well, we couldn't quit laughing because I was making some faces while trying to keep my eyes open. Even though we had trouble, I think she got some good shots. I wish it would have been a little bit prettier. Here are some of my favorites. Let me know which ones you like best. One will be chosen to be put on the invitations.

Jackson Scare

Jackson was diagnosed with Roundworm when we first got him. We had to give him 3 shots then wait 10 days and give him 3 more. Saturday started his second doses. He got really sick. He started throwing up and bad diarrhea. We called the emergency vet on Sunday, and he told us to continue to give the medicine. We did, and he seemed okay Sunday night. I called our regular vet on Monday, and they said not to give him another dose. Monday night was horrible. He threw up again. The diarrhea had not stopped since Saturday. So, this morning I get to the vet when they open at 7. Well, the vets don't come in until about 8 or 8:30, depending on when they have their first appointment. So while we waited, they did a fecal test for worms. It came back negative. Next, check his temperature with a rectal thermometer. Normal. The vet finally gets in at 8:20. He tests for Parvo and Giardia. Two more rectal tests. They both came back negative. The vet wanted to do a second worm test. It came back negative also. 5 tests with something going up Jackson's rectum. That is some day!!

So, the vet asked if he could do an abdomen scan. Of course (hope it doesn't cost much). Well, that came back and showed that Jackson had an obscene amount of gas in his intestines. The vet wanted to keep him for the day. They gave him fluids (90 dollars in fluids). They gave him an antibiotic. They then gave him some food around 4:20. The vet called and said to come get Jackson because he was bouncing off the walls. The vet said he had bacterial inurites (I think that is how it is spelled). He ate something bad that upset his stomach. Hopefully this won't happen again. This little accident cost us almost $400. What a costly little dog he is already. We wouldn't trade him for the world though. Just no more snooping around the backyard!!
